Here is Seth receiving an Award for his school Hall of Fame. Each grade has a required "Mad Minute" that they must complete (for example getting a page of multiplication problems completed accurately in one minute) before passing off others. Seth passed off five this year: Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, and Mixed Facts. He is looking forward to next year as the sixth grade class seems to put a lot of emphasis on this. Several kids in the sixth grade were awarded plaques for completing eight or even sixteen different Mad Minute sheets ranging from basic math facts to more complex such as mixed fractions, percentages, etc., as well as facts like States and Capitals, Periodic Table and reciting the Gettysburg Address. (do they have to do that one in one minute??) I have no doubt that Seth will be receiving several of those awards next year. He thrives on such competition.
The last day of kindergarten was today. The school did not do any type of ceremony. I have always thought kindergarten graduations were a bit silly, but I admit I was a little sad not to have one this time for Grant. He is very excited about sleeping in! I will believe it when I see it. :)
Seth and Brenna are done with school after tomorrow. We have a fun summer packed with visits to grandparent's homes.
Hooray for Summer Break!
